Question Brake Squeal In Reverse

Hello All

Maybe one of you can give some insight. My rear disk brakes squeal really bad when coming to a stop after backing out of a spot. I just put on some Akebono ProAct pads trying to get rid of the noise. The pins were dry, but they are properly lubed now. I did not change or machine the rotors because they looked very good. I just sanded then with 280 Grit to rid them of the glaze. This did not solve the problem. Even after a proper break in they still squeek in reverse. They are working well and make no noise at all in normal-forward driving and stoping, but they squeal badly enough to break glass when stoping in reverse...Any ideas would be appreciated.

Juat do a qucik double check and make sure the wear indicator isn't bent in on the rotor by accident. If that isn't it, did the last pads wear flat from end to end or were they more sloped?

Thats the only time it squeals for/aft is if not parallel to the rotor. . . Does that make sense?
